Retinol and SPF: Why They Go Hand-in-Hand

If you've recently invested in your skincare and started using Retinol in your routine to target the signs of aging, you'll want to protect this investment. There are a number of ways to protect your skin from pre-mature aging and to get the most out of your retinol SKIN-vestment. 

Within the Ageless System our Overnight Retinol Powerbalm products are recommended for night-time use. Using Retinol in your skincare routine increases your skins sensitivity to sun exposure. This is why we recommend using an SPF 30 throughout the day to help reduce sensitivity and to protect your skin from pre-mature aging. 

Even if you apply retinol at night, it’s absolutely critical to apply sunscreen in the morning. Not only does wearing sunscreen help maintain the efficacy of your topical retinoids, but it also provides much-needed protection from the sun

What Retinol products are there at SKINICIAN?

The SKINCIAN Ageless Over Retinol Powerbalm (Level 1 & Level 2) works to improve skin texture, boost collagen production and diminish dark spots. It’s easy to see why our customers love it. But retinol use must be introduced with care as it comes with its fair share of side effects, such as irritation and redness, if used incorrectly.

Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1

SKINICIAN's Retinol Powerbalm Level 1  contains 0.1% Retinol. This product is fortified with a blend of powerhouse Peptides and Retinol and will actively reduce pigmentation, lines and wrinkles while refining pores and firming skin to leave you with a younger looking complexion.

Gradually add it into your skincare regime in order to avoid unwanted side effects.

You can purchase our Retinol Power Trio if you'd like to kickstart your Retinol journey with us. 

Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2

SKINICIAN's Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2 is formulated with Retinol (0.5%) and a Powerhouse Peptide. This overnight treatment will actively reduce pigmentation, lines and wrinkles while refining pores and firming skin to provide a younger looking complexion.

The Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2 is 5x stronger than Level 1 so be sure to slowly phase it into your skincare routine to avoid any skin irritation, especially if you are new to using Retinol. 

REMEMBER: The two ways to help reduce the signs of ageing and to protect your skin are to 1) apply Retinol products in the evening and to 2) wear lots of sunscreen during the day.
